Here is a log of recent changes/additions to the Local Agency GSPs.

Using the Local Agency GSPs

When downloading the Local Agency GSPs, it is critical that you check the index for guidelines on:

  • When to use each GSP, including which of several options for one GSP
  • Which GSPs must be used together
  • Which GSPs may not be used on FHWA funded projects
  • What to use for fill-ins (shown as $$1$$ in the GSP - insert the appropriate text after you download)

When the Local Agency GSPs revise only a part of a paragraph(s) in a section of the WSDOT/APWA Standard Specifications, the entire paragraph is repeated, with new text underlined for clarity, and deleted text crossed out. When the entire paragraph or section is revised, underlines are not used. GSP files are in Rich Text Format (RTF), to retain formatting with most word processing software programs.

How to download the Local Agency GSPs

  1. Go to the GSP Index below and download individual GSPs.
  2. Download the Local Agency GSPs from the FTP site.
  3. Download a zip file with all of the most current Local Agency GSPs.
  4. Use the WSDOT PS&E Word Program* to download the specification compilation software, along with all of the Local Agency GSPs and WSDOT GSPs.
    *When using this program, make sure to use the Local Agency Special Provisions Introduction GSP, not the WSDOT Introduction GSP.
    *Once you download this program, you will need to manually update it periodically with the latest WSDOT GSPs and Local Agency GSPs. You can do this by either uninstalling and re-downloading the program (the latest date of program update is listed on the page), or by downloading specific GSPs and replacing them in the program's library on your computer.

Shaping and Compaction
PHMA/PWMA/PConcrete

(March 9, 2016)

Because of the high void content in the aggregates, there will be some displacement of the aggregate surface under load. Crushed Surfacing Choker Course is used to minimize the displacement in preparation for paving. The use of Asphalt Treated Permeable Base (ATPB) directly over the Permeable Ballast Base Course eliminates the need for Crushed Surfacing Choker Course.
